A 503PS version of the Audi A1 will debut this week at the 30th annual Worthersee tour meeting. The unique Audi A1 clubsport quattro features a modified version of the turbo charged five-cylinder petrol engine as seen in the Audi RS 3 Sportback. The modifications allow the Audi A1 clubsport to achieve a 0-62mph time of 3.7 seconds and 0-124mph in 10.9 seconds.
The turbocharger, intercooler, induction tract and exhaust system have be tuned for high performance, with the tailpipe being located on the left flank just in front of the rear wheel, as on the Audi A4 DTM.
The Audi A1 sportclub quattro features 255/30 low profile tyres on 19inch unique turbine design alloy wheels with large internally ventilated disc brakes, carbon fibre-ceramic on the front and large steel discs on the back. Coilover suspension features adjustable compression and rebound damping.
The body is finished in Glacier White matte paint finish with a roof arch in high-gloss black and a carbon fibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP) roof. The front skirt features large split air intakes with carbon struts.
On the inside, the walls in the rear section of the car, tubes of the air vents and the lower section of the centre console feature matte-finish CRFP. Centre console rocker switches replace switches on the control stalk. The dials provide oil pressure, boost pressure and electrical system voltage information.
The Audi A1 clubsport quattro can also be experienced exclusively in Need for Speed World, where it will be available to all players as a free in-game rental car.
